Tank Cleaning for Petroleum Company by Clean Fuels Associates Inc.

Crude oil sludge creates a thick substance comprised of 67% oil, 25% solids, and 8% water. This unwanted substance collects at the bottom of oil tanks in petroleum companies and tank farms. This causes several issues, including discharge line blockages and reduced storage capacity. Regular oil tank cleaning and sludge removal are necessary to maximize storage capacity and prevent blockages. This step also slows the development of corrosion.

Clogging filters, fuel contamination, and slower pumping times are the results of improperly maintained tanks. The result is costly downtime and frequent filter changes. Utilizing the proprietary cleaning methods employed by Clean Fuels Associates, Inc. will significantly reduce your overall operating cost.

Petroleum companies rank among the primary industries served by Clean Fuels Associates Inc. when tank cleaning services are required. Due to changing fuel formulas, the need to remove sludge from tank interiors has become more necessary with each passing year. Fuels with Ethanol blends can cause microbial contamination.

Tank Cleaning for Petroleum Companies by Clean Fuels Associates Inc.

Tank Cleaning for Petroleum Company

As an industry leader, Clean Fuels Associates Inc. performs a thorough cleaning process for each of the customers. Prior to cleaning tanks at a petroleum company, all the remaining fuel is removed via a vacuum truck. All drop tubes are removed and a suction hose connected to the vacuum truck is placed at the lower end of the tank.
A Proprietary 3-D nozzle is then positioned to clean 360 degrees. This process is done through all the fill openings. After that, a video inspection is performed to ensure that the cleaned tank meets or exceeds the customer’s requirements. Fuel is then filtered back into the tank - clean and prepared for filling.
